I have seen on social media that many adults in Wilton believe that this corona-induced break is seen as a vacation by the students. They believe that we would rather have this than be in school. As a high school senior, I can tell you that is 100-percent not true.
Before I have a mob of angry adults at my house, allow me to explain. As you can assume, I am writing this on the assumption that we will not return to school this year. On Wednesday, March 11, we had a half-day of school. As we excitedly packed up our belongings and headed home for what we thought was a long weekend, please trust me when I say that none of us thought it would be our last day in high school. If we had, I would have taken the time to say thank you and goodbye to my favorite teachers and administrators. For my peers who play spring sports, they were psyched to play their final season. For those who spent years passionate about theater and orchestra, they were looking forward to their final show.
